New Program Enables Remote Employees to Stay Responsive to Customers and Partners

8×8, Inc. (NYSE:EGHT), an integrated cloud communications platform, has launched the 8×8 Rapid Expansion Program to help companies remain ready and resilient during challenging times, especially when required to suddenly increase their remote workforce, the company said.

This innovative program minimizes business disruption by allowing organizations to quickly extend their cloud communications and collaboration solution to employees, who rely on a desk phone in the office and are new to remote working, without impacting customer engagement.

The 8×8 Rapid Expansion Program enables customers to extend their existing 8×8 cloud communications deployment to support the needs of new remote workers by allowing employees, who primarily use a desk phone in the office, to receive a new, dedicated phone number associated with their original business line.

By using a single application for mobile and desktop devices, this provides workers with location-independent access to voice, unlimited video conferencing and chat. It also ensures continuous, uninterrupted availability as employees have the ability to move from the office to any remote location.

8×8 is transforming the future of business communications as a Software-as-a-Service provider of voice, video, chat, contact center, and enterprise-class API solutions powered by one global cloud communications platform. 8×8 empowers workforces worldwide to connect individuals and teams so they can collaborate faster and work smarter.
